Alec Holland and his wife, Linda Holland, form a research team who is trying to "create gardens out of sweltering deserts". With the Holland's Bio-Restorative formula a country or organization could control who has food and who doesn't. Basically it's a formula that people would be willing to kill in order to keep. Hidden away in a remote swamp the Holland's work on the formula but their location is known by a nefarious group, the Conclave, seeking the formula. Because Alec won't surrender the formula they plant a bomb in his lab. The explosion sends the fiery form, that was formerly Dr. Holland, running into a swamp.

Unknown to the world, Dr. Holland rises from the muck and the mire completely and wholly changed into Swamp Thing. He cannot let his wife see him as this deformed monster but he also has to protect her. Lurking on the edges of the swamp he destroys those men who "killed" him.
